MUNICIPAL CLAIMS, WRITS OF SCIRE FACIAS AUTHORIZED
                  Act of Mar. 22, 1933, P.L. 18, No. 14               Cl. 53
                                  AN ACT

     To authorize boroughs and townships of the first class to sue
        out writs of scire facias on certain municipal claims, where
        more than five years have elapsed since said claims were
        filed, and to reduce such claims to judgment; and providing
        for the revival and collection of such judgments.

        Section 1.  Be it enacted, &c., That whenever any borough or
     township of the first class has heretofore filed in the office
     of the prothonotary of the proper county any municipal claim or
     claims, and the borough or township of the first class has not,
     within the period of five years after the date on which any such
     claim was filed, sued out a writ of scire facias to reduce the
     same to judgment, then, in any such case, any such borough or
     township of the first class may, within six months after the
     passage and approval of this act, issue its praecipe for a writ
     of scire facias on any such municipal claim and proceed to
     judgment in the manner provided by law to obtain judgments upon
     municipal claims; and such judgment shall be a valid judgment
     and be a lien upon the real estate upon which it was a lien at
     the time it was filed, and said judgment may be revived and
     collected as other judgments upon municipal claims are revived
     and collected: Provided, however, That the lien of any such
     judgment shall not reattach against any real estate transferred
     to any purchaser during the time when the lien of any such
     municipal claim was lost, nor shall the lien of any such
     judgment impair or affect the priority of the lien of any
     mortgage or other lien which gained priority because of the
     failure of the borough or township of the first class to sue out
     the writ of scire facias within the five year period, or was
     entered of record during the time the lien of such municipal
     claim was lost.
        This act shall be in effect immediately upon its passage, and
     approval by the Governor.
